“Steelbird Helmets is planning to launch face shields for kids in different and attractive designs in a week’s time” added Mr Kapur. Steelbird believes that kids are the most vulnerable to viruses as keeping them in check is a big task for parents especially when unattended at parks etc. Hence, face shield can work as a big tool as kids often are hesitant to wear masks. Also, special designer face shields are being developed for women to make them adapt face shields as a daily use product.Mr Kapur has also requested the Govt. of India to abolish GST from these life saving devices such as Face Shields, PPE kits, Masks, Sanitizers etc. as these all are going to be a necessity for people and to encourage public to use them, we must relook into the pricing which is possible if govt supports and do away with the taxes on these items. The price range of these face shields varies between MRP Rs.299/- to Rs.699/-
